AINSLIE: Can’t fault this guy for dreaming

Published on April 7th, 2013

Brit Ben Ainslie has five Olympic medals, and claims he will collect no more. And who could blame him; his haul – five gold and one silver – stands alone and, given the trends in Olympic sailing, may forever.

So besides his next feeble goal of winning an America’s Cup, what might be his dream day? Here is how Ben would spend 24 hours if there were no travel restrictions…

“I’d wake up on a Sunday and watch Chelsea thrash Spurs on Match Of The Day. After that I’d put on The Andrew Marr Show and read the newspapers, then play golf at Pebble Beach, California, with my mates. My girlfriend Marit and I would have great seafood for lunch at Catalina restaurant by Sydney Harbour. I’d spend the afternoon sailing around the harbour, then head to Las Vegas for a major night out with friends: we’d have Japanese for dinner at Nobu, then party at the Wynn hotel.” – Daily mail, full interview
